Cramalt Craig from Megget

Sunshine and lollipops, rainbows and lemon drops ... well, sunshine at least, and great snow in the Moffat and Tweedsmuir Hills. A wee tour on beautiful snow from Megget to Cramalt Craig, and I was a pussy cat lapping up the sunshine on milder slopes w…

Broughton Hills

3rd March 2018 - Finally a day off work and with the road past our house cleared of snow, I was able to get the van out of Moffat. I headed up to Broughton, somewhere I've wanted to ski for a long time, being a regular spot for hill running because the hills there are picturesque, not too high, and reward hungry people with scooby snacks in the village. Visibility wasn't great, and like elsewhere, most of the snow had been blown down to the roads. Nevertheless, decent lines were available on WSW aspects with continuous snow from the car park to access them. We did a few laps of some excellently named tops including one called 'Hammerhead', and skied all the way back to the car park in Broughton just as the weather closed in. Finished off with coffee and a toastie in the lovely Laurel Bank Bistro

These are a few of the photos I've taken mostly during various work parties over the last 2 and a bit years so as to document what we're doing at the Lowther Hills Ski Club.

the undercroft, manchester

Note the homage to the Smiths penned on the wall beside the police notice. Variously said to be the hang-out of a contemporary serial killer, vicious muggers and locus of a cottaging industry, this path runs alongside a section of the Rochdale Canal, between Dale Street and Minshull Street and is known as the 'Undercroft'. By day it's grimy enough but by night it must have been especially grim. I'll never get the chance to find out though as since early 2017 it has been kept locked at night.

Glasgow gallery of modern art (1 new item)

I was fortunate enough to be asked to shoot a morning gathering in Glasgow's Gallery of Modern Art but had a half hour in the afternoon to look around before the bus left to take me back to Moffat. There are some great and thought provoking works on display but it's the amalgam of old and new architecture c/w with soft and sympathetic lighting that adds to the gallery's attraction.
